Searching for Rhode Island first time home buyer grants to purchase a home? Find cool grants/programs for home buying in Rhode Island and other home mortgage grants available below.
So, you are considering the purchase of a home in Rhode Island. That is a big decision. Purchasing a house in any state is an exciting prospect! It will be the biggest financial decision in your life.
Although exciting, it is also daunting because of the huge financial commitment. But don't let that deter you. It is my plan to give you some useful information about home buying grants which will help you with this exciting and much sought after venture.
Qualifying for one of these grants is like receiving a package all gift wrapped with grant dollars.
To begin with, unfortunately, the State of Rhode Island does not offer a Rhode Island first time home buyer grant program for its residents.
What they do have for their residents is really cool. They have a program called the "FirstHomes" program. This is a hundred percent financing program.
With 100% financing, you don't need money for your down payment. That's cool isn't it. They even have help for the closing costs with these programs as well.
Another program is called the "Beyond FirstHomes." What's nice about this program is you don't have to be a first time buyer. They also have a low down payment requirement.
They also have a program called the "LastingHomes." This is for repairing a home. Perhaps you want a foreclosure and need help with fixing it up. You may want to see if you fit into this program as well.
With any program, there are eligibility requirements and limitations. So you will have to investigate to see if these programs are a nice fit for you.
You can check it out by going to their website.
However, the good news is that the federal government does offer grant assistance for first time home buyers in Rhode Island. This program is maintained by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development and is called the Homes and Communities program.
The website for the grant program maintained by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development can be visited by using this link, HUD Grant Information.
Another website I would recommend that you view is Visit the Government Grants. This website offers a list of all federal government grant programs. It would be a good idea to take some time and browse through this site to see what it offers and the qualifications for application.
When applying for grants or assistance programs you will need to be patient. Many times they take time to get through the process. Sellers can get very impatient. So you will need a real estate agent who is very familiar with these programs and can ease tensions for the seller.
You still need a mortgage that works with them as well. Finding a lender who understand your needs can be difficult.
In the meantime, start a savings program. If for some reason a program doesn't work for you, perhaps you will already have enough money saved. Then if you don't need the savings, now you can buy the things you need for your new home!
Perhaps a grant is not available in your state. Or you do not qualify for one. Don't get discouraged. If you still want to save money, check out this page that discusses the zero down payment program.
Otherwise, you may want to look at programs that have low down payment requirements.
